Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 78 touches on Star Wars Battlefront II, Han Solo crew gear, then they dive into their main discussion – Star Wars on QVC. They talk about the content that was on the channel, the products, the callers, and Mark Hamill’s involvement complete with some audio clips. As someone who missed out on the whole QVC Star Wars thing, this was a fun episode.

Bombad Radio: Episode 280 is an interview with make-up artist Brian Sipe who talks about X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, working with actors, the challenges with the make-up, and other movies he’s worked on. It’s a good interview. Afterwards there’s some general movie discussion. Good episode.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 123 features Joe and special guest host Matt Moore as they talk about home brewed gin, vodka’s of choice, heavy metal, Conan, Robert E. Howard, Lovecraft, how they got into comics, and then they get into Star Wars comics. They touch on the Han Solo mini-series, the Captain Phasma mini-series, Poe Dameron, the main title, Lando and Doctor Aphra. Fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

But for now, it’s time for a return to what she does best. With droids Triple-Zero and BeeTee-One in tow, she’s off in search of rare artifacts from the galactic center to the Outer Rim — and everywhere in between. Aphra’s got debts to pay, after all.

Poe will undertake a secret mission from General Leia Organa herself: to escort none other than C-3PO on a dangerous journey to the planet Kaddak! Can they complete the mission and keep their key informant intact? Or will Terex’s past somehow come back to haunt them? Join Poe and Threepio as they take on the First Order! Collecting STAR WARS: POE DAMERON #8-13.
